Wait. What? WTF?
Yes, it’s true. In this post-modern era of brand name licensing whoredom, there is actually a Pierre Cardin-branded Android tablet.
… the Pierre Cardin Tablet PC is aimed at brand conscious women aged 18 to 34, technology novices not traditionally targeted by PC manufacturers. This makes it an ideal product to add to retailers existing ranges to attract these cash-rich fashionistas into their stores.
“Cash-rich fashionistas”?!!? Someone needs a slap.
Anyway, because YouTube Search is so damned atrocious — which doesn’t seem to bother its parent company which, you know, made its reputation based on search — I didn’t see this video until tonight.
Now you can too, after the break.
I’m not sure which company put that out. And, you know, I’m not in any hurry to find out. Because that tablet isn’t going to go anywhere. Apple will prevent its sale via injunctions for “trade dress” infringement. That the demo tablet itself shows shoddy assembly and no Pierre Cardin logo on it tells me whoever exhibited it was crossing their fingers and hoping to line up suckers. I doubt they were successful. Next!
